Fixed Permanent Titans

Mod ID: 1639458270
Mod created to fix a bug in Singleplayer where Titans start starving to death. Can also be used on servers, but be aware that only one of the same Titan can exist on the map at a time (resulting in one Titan blocking all attempts at fighting or taming another of the same type).

This mod adds two items: The Life Extender and the Life Compressor.
The Life Extender adds a buff that constantly adds food to the Titan, preventing any decrease in food. The buff is visible while active, and the buff cannot be applied to anything other than the 3 tameable Titans. If the item is used on a Titan that has been downloaded (and max food is set to 0, preventing it from gaining food) then the max food is set to the default value.
The Life Compressor removes the buff, and the Titan will begin slowly losing food as normal.

Both items are unlockable at base level and require 1 Element to craft. Crafting cost can be adjusted with the ConfigOverrideCraftingCost ini config setting, but this is meant to be a bug fix/alternative to a lack of ini config and not a new mechanic, so the cost is intentionally low.

The buff will persist on server/singleplayer restart.

Not even sure if you can spawn them on the Center map, but no, unless they are modded Titans they are flagged as Unique Dino and a second one cannot be summoned (even with cheats) if one is already existing in the map.

ok so question. I am using this with simple spawners on my center map. Will I be able to tame desert titan and somebody else be able to tame another as well?

Sounds good! If not no worries, I can update my customs to work around it :)

I'm guessing what happened was the food stat was set to zero on the events that ran after the download process finished. In this case you can use the Compressor to remove the buff and re-apply it again with another Extender, but i'll look into it more (can probably check if it has the downloading sickness buff and set a timer to try to re-apply until that finishes).

Perfect! That's what I wanted to know.
For some reason, one time when I applied the buff during the Titan's download process it set it correctly, but after downloading was complete, the food stat reverted. Since the buff was still applied, using another Life Extender wasn't possible to re-trigger the food set.
If you don't want to set a timer for it, I can fix it just for my own my own case to call the buff from another buff being applied to make it work. :) I'd been considering making the buff default for Titan's anyway so I don't need the item to be crafted.

The setting of the max food stat is checked on begin play and if it's currently set to 0 (happens on download) it sets it to the default for Titans. Otherwise the stat remains at 0/0 and food can't be added. If the max food isn't 0 it doesn't make any changes. (Note this is max, not current - if current is 0 then it still doesn't make any changes.)

After that it just adds food through the buff defaults so that it doesn't actually "decrease".

Hey there, does the food stat setter fire on a loop/timer or is it just once at play?

I've already responded to your reports in the bug reports section asking for more details.
